Sony Takes Over the Castel Sant’Angelo in Time for the European PS4 Launch

sony europe playstation 4 Castel Sant’Angelo

The Playstation 4’s full European launch is drawing near, and Sony Europe has been outdoing themselves with the launch of the console in Italy, which is featuring a launch event in Rome.

Pictured above is the Castel Sant’Angelo, or the Castle St. Angel, a massive fortress built for the Roman Emperor Hadrian, then used as a Papal stronghold, and now used as a museum and summer palace for the Pope.

The reason why it’s colored such a brilliant blue is because Sony is holding a launch event in the Castel itself, while drenching the outsides in blue and Playstation imagery.
